Thank you very much, Mike and Vishvesh, for sharing some of my excitement.
Yes, there is a marked resemblance with a young Eliot there! And the voice is Eliot's, Vishvesh. The pronunciation of "dead" sounds strange to Indian ears, maybe, because we pronounce the vowel a little more open.
Thank YOu CR. The video was not streaming properly,
but the audio was superb. It was wonderful to *hear*
the poem. Was it Eliot's voice ? (By the way, I felt
strange the way 'dead' was pronounced)

Great - it has brightened up what was so far a rather negative day. Could almost be the young Eliot with his tea.

In case you haven't already seen this clip of a video of Prufrock,
do enjoy it. A rare feast!
Only if it were possible for us to watch it in full.
